Magazine Ban of 2013 (Video - Bill Will Be Introduced This Week!)
YouTube - Military Arms Channel ^ | 1-2-2013 | Sturmgewehre

Posted on 01/02/2013 7:48:33 PM PST by servo1969

The House Democrats (Diana DeGette, D-CO) are submitting a bill in the next few days to Congress to ban any magazine over 10 rounds in capacity. We must act now to stop this erosion of our 2nd Amendment rights!

The Dems are going to move on guns NOW! Not next week, Right Now! They're not going to let this chance get by. And, of course, Lindsey Graham has already indicated he will be right there ready to sign it with that stupid 'Jimmy Carter' smile of his.

I am “Pro-Choice” when it comes to the method of defending myself and family - regardless of calibre, capacity, or the use of agressive-looking hand-grips. I am “Pro-Life” in the protection of my life and home. The Second Amendment should not be aborted - not even a partial abortion. I would not own assault weapons, I would only own aggressively-defensive weapons.

At the same time, write your Republican COngresscritters and tell them to get that Damned Idiot Boehner out of the Speaker’s slot.

While he is there, Obama will have a cakewalk over ANY bill he pushes.

Boehner is the WORST surrender monkey in American history.

The way I’m getting this is that if you have a pistol that will accept a magazine with over 10 round capacity the pistol will have to be specially permitted. You won’t have to have the magazine.

DeGette is a House Dimwit. Boehner’s replacement better not bring this idiotic bill to the floor.

And Graham didn’t give any indication on NBC with David ‘DC 30 Rd Mag’ Gregory he was in favor of any ban. In fact, to his credit, Graham said he’s a proud owner of an AR-15.

Now isn’t the time to hide your possessions. Unearthing them later is simply too late.

If they initiate a ban that needs resistance now, then it’s better to take the fight directly to them and immediately.

The question should be, are we ready to stand our ground over magazine capacity, or will we let them continue to slowly erode our Second Amendment rights.

The way I see it, more than enough people are happy to simply let them ban “high capacity magazines”, so it wouldn’t surprise me to see this go through Congress with little to no opposition.

OK, shall we try to make it closer to a “fair fight”? Any person using a banned magazine in a gun in order to further some other crime, automatically gets put to death? So maybe the robbers and muggers and gang bangers will get with the program too?

(HA! Let’s see the liberals do the double walk on that one)

Grahamnesty is not in the House, but we also know the ban didnt work in DC. David Gregory is still walking the streets.

I get it but I get this sinking feeling that the surrender monkeys in the House will decide they have to do something and look like they "care" or else they'll be demonized even more by the MSM and the left.

Of course, we know that in any case they will be berated for what ever decision they make, and although doing nothing would be the correct thing (as far as "banning" anything goes), the track record from these cowards makes the outcome seem inevitable that a "ban" of "high capacity magazines" will pass.

What has happened is everyone was pounded with coordinated propaganda about the school shooting for 3 weeks straight.

Never mind during that same time, a huge number more people were variously dead from any number of things.

Already, people are starting to forget. That is why Obama is trying to get as much as possible as quickly as possible.

Forget it. No new laws.

“The way I’m getting this is that if you have a pistol that will accept a magazine with over 10 round capacity the pistol will have to be specially permitted. You won’t have to have the magazine.”

Wouldn’t that include just about EVERY semi-automatic pistol that can accept a magazine?

What handgun out there can accept a 10-round mag, but nothing larger?

... I guess that’s the point. Make them ALL “registrable”...

Yes, the Dems are saying exactly that on MSNBC, they are saying they must get these up for votes fast before the public moves on.

But they dont have the House fortunately and will hopefully get no vote there, the senate might pass some bills.

The public has already moved on.

Well, they'll likely get their “high capacity magazine” ban, but that doesn't mean they'll be able to do much of anything about it as obviously the vast majority will not be “turned in”.

However, it's well past time to prepare to go on the offensive if they pass any kind of “Assault Weapon Ban”, IMO.

Use it or lose it. Take the fight to the domestic enemies, and I mean immediately after any “confiscation” effort commences. I would also suggest starting an offensive at the beginning of any so-called “amnesty period” if such nonsense is mandated.

In the end, if they want to attempt to start confiscating from citizens, it's immediately time to turn the tables on them and start “confiscating” their possessions and put them on the defensive. If they start Ruby Ridge or Waco ops, then put them under siege as well, surround them and get the initiative at the outset.

Hit them where they breed!

Anyways, sorry for the rant, just so sick and tired of reading so many posts about how there is nothing we can do but submit and we have no chance and after a few people are made examples of we will all willingly turn in our weapons. It just pisses me off to see so many cowards that have little or no imagination. I feel that Americans are very intelligent and are quite capable of stunning ingenuity when faced with "impossible odds", and I'm not a fan of so much "negativity".

It’s not me who needs to understand what you’re saying, it’s our “elected legislature” that needs to understand.

And seeing how fast they really want to push this, we need to do something now to get our representative to understand their duty as OUR servants.

Imprecise language aside.

In California, the 10 round Magazine applies to Semi-auto Pistols as well. Here we have the “approved” Handgun list, coming to a State near you.

Funny how the Rat introducing this is from the formerly Free State of Colorado.

“Gun Sales Up, Crime Down”

January 2, 2013
by Sam Rolley

“Gun sales are up in California and, contrary to what politicians and the media say, gun deaths and injuries in the State are down sharply.

Firearm dealers in California sold 600,000 guns in 2011, almost double the number sold in 2002. Over the same period of time, hospitalizations due to gun injuries declined from about 4,000 annually to 2,900, a roughly 25 percent drop, according to The Sacramento Bee...”

I think they are trying to ban any gun that accepts magazines of 10 rounds or more. That is effectively every semi-automatic rifle and handgun in existence.

They want us back to bolt action rifles and revolvers.

The Communists would love it.

The new law would read: "Possession of a firearm at the same time you possess a 30-round magazine is a felony..." There's your crime.
